Arizonans Pack Sky Harbor Airport Before Thanksgiving

November 27, 2013

A lot of Arizonans will be heading to the airport on Wednesday for a holiday trip. Deborah Ostreicher of Sky Harbor Airport said for people who fly infrequently, there may be questions about what foods will be allowed on the plane.

“Cans of sodas, your coffees, things like that that you pick up before security, that can’t go through security, but your salad with your side of salad dressing, that is no problem,” Ostreicher said.

She advised travelers to arrive at the airport at least two hours before their flights, and she said it is best not to wrap presents before going through security. Ostreicher said even gifts in checked bags should be left unwrapped.
